Itinerary

DAY 1: Biking in Chatham

8 miles, Optional Hiking – 1 mile
You’ll start your trip shuttling from Boston to your first night’s lodging in Chatham on Cape Cod. After a brief orientation, you’ll go for a short spin passing Chatham Lighthouse along the way and have the chance to hike on Morris Island. Tonight you’ll enjoy your first dinner together with the group at a local favorite restaurant, just a short walk from our lodging.
Meals included: Dinner

DAY 2: Kayaking Pleasant Bay & Biking to Nickerson

19, 30, or 37 miles
Today you head into Orleans to enjoy a relaxing two-hour kayak on Nauset Marsh before lunch. After your paddle, you’ll head on to Brewster and Nickerson State Park on the blissfully car-free Cape Cod Rail Trail. If you’re looking for more mileage, you can pedal on to the town of Dennis before making your way back to Chatham. Tonight you’ll dine at the Impudent Oyster in downtown Chatham.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

DAY 3: Ferry to Nantucket,

Optional Biking 20 miles
After breakfast you’ll make the 80-minute ferry crossing to the former whaling port of Nantucket. You can learn about the island’s history at the whaling museum as a docent explains the whaling past and Quaker roots of Nantucket. If you’d rather, take a bike ride to Siasconset at the easternmost part of the island, or you can stay in town and visit more historical sights along the cobblestoned streets of the town center. At the end of the day you’ll ferry back to the Cape then shuttle to Chatham, where you’ll enjoy a delicious clambake.
Meals included: Breakfast & Dinner

DAY 4: Biking to Provincetown

17, 39, or 58 miles & Hiking – 2 miles
This morning you bid farewell to Chatham and head down the Cape to Provincetown. You’ll return to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and take it to the end in Wellfleet before spinning along the country roads to the tip of the Cape. Along the way, you’ll be able to stop and tour a lighthouse and hike the surreal White Cedar Swamp Trail. As you travel through Wellfleet and Provincetown, the number of art galleries and unique shops you’ll pass are testimony to the thriving artist community on the Lower Cape.
Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch

DAY 5: Whale watching cruise

After yesterday, you’ve earned the right to relax a bit. You’ll enjoy a pleasant four-hour cruise on our whale watching vessel out to the plankton-rich feeding grounds where you may see minke, finback or maybe even the majestic white-fluked humpback whales. After your cruise, you’re free to enjoy lunch at the restaurant of your choice and explore, at your own pace, the many shops and sights of Commercial Street in Provincetown. You’ll enjoy a farewell dinner by the water as you recall the week’s events and stories.
Meals included: Breakfast & Dinner

DAY 6: Biking the Province Lands

Biking – 8 miles
After yet another delicious breakfast, you’ll hop on your bike and head toward the very tip of the Cape. You’ll be able to stop at the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor Center and learn more of the natural history of this coastal region. After our ride, you’ll have the chance to shower & pack up before we shuttle you back to Boston.
